Dijon Lemon Glazed Salmon 

Salmon is by far my favorite fish. I love it in so many ways… as sashimi, smoked, tartare, grilled, baked, poached and even canned. I am always looking for new ways to make it and recently I ate it in an Italian restaurant where it was dijon glazed. I was determined to recreate the recipe…

Dill Dijon Crusted Halibut

Craving a delicious, yet healthy seafood dish? You found it! I love cooking halibut because it is a nice flaky white fish that does not fall apart easily.
